Episode 221: Parenting: Life is Messy - Perspective to Enjoy the Ride


Life is messy. But what if we flipped the switch and look at even the seemingly ordinary places in our lives to find our greater pupose? So many of us think that we need to clean up our lives in order for God to use us. But what if He’s in the middle of the messes too? What if the messes are where He does his best work?

Cynthia Yanof is a wife, mother, podcaster, blogger, and everyday girl who is ridiculously committed to not taking herself too seriously. Cynthia worked as an attorney before pursuing a career encouraging and equipping women in their God-given callings. She currently hosts the popular MESSmerized podcast, and many Christians are also familiar with her work for ChristianParenting.org, as well as her time as the creator and host of the ministry’s Pardon the Mess podcast. She loves speaking, writing, foster care, and hanging out in Dallas with her husband Mike and three kids.

Episode 220: Leadership, Gen Z, and the Mental Health Crisis


Today we are talking about the mental health crisis, GEN Z and leadership tips for our own mental health.

We discuss the power of rest and four key aspects of healthy leaders. Dr. Van Der Kolk, one of the leading researchers on trauma, says that we are seeing unresolved trauma as the leading health crisis of our times.

Mental health counselors have become the new “priest” or “pastor” to many, helping people find a healthy way toward God and others. Not saying this is right, but it is true.

So to talk about the current mental health crisis, and how we as mental health providers can be a part of the solution and not add to the pain, we have a newer friend of ours, Zach Clinton, with us today.

Zach Clinton currently serves as the Vice President of the American Association of Christian Counselors. He is the host of the renowned ‘Built Different Podcast’ and is President & Host of Ignite Men’s Impact Weekend that gathers nearly 10,000 men each year. A Licensed Resident Counselor in Virginia, he is completing his doctoral program in Counselor Education & Supervision at Liberty University. He is a former Division 1 college baseball player and is recognized as a growing authority and voice on performance, motivational psychology, and mental health for today’s generations. You won't want to miss this episode!

Episode 216: Leaders Accept Their Limits with Sara Hagerty

So many messages, particularly those heard in leadership circles, urge us to move past our limits. No pain no gain. This message is loud and clear at the gym, and some of us even hear it at church. Sometimes it’s subtle. Sometimes it’s in your face. “See what you're made of!” 

 

Don’t get us wrong, we love a good challenge, but we also believe many of us have a false view of our actual capacities. The pace of our lives says something. At times we might find ourselves feeling like it’s all too much. Too much laundry and too many bills. Too many appointments, meetings, and responsibilities. Too many open tabs on our browser. We go to bed exhausted, too tired to enjoy a few minutes with our own thoughts. 

 

What if learning to accept our human limits allows us to fully reach our potential? In our work, especially with our Wholehearted Leadership Cohorts, we often say, “Wholehearted leaders learn to love their limits.” We explore this idea of limits, accepting our circumstances and fences that appear in our lives, with our guest, Sara Hagerty. As a driver and leader herself, she has experienced infertility, illness, loss and much more. 

 

Sara Hagerty is a bestselling author and Jesus follower. She is the wife and mother of seven – four adopted from Africa and three through miracle pregnancies. Her first book, Every Bitter Thing Is Sweet (2014), ponders the conflict inherent when life’s expectations do not meet up with reality. Her latest book, The Gift of Limitations: Finding Beauty in Your Boundaries (March 2024), illustrates how our greatest weaknesses are the doorway to rich intimacy with God. Sara and her family live in Missouri.

Episode 214: Pacing Ourselves - Finishing Well with the Mattsons

It's a new year and new year's resolutions are on the rise - while anxiety, business and lack of clarity are too. What if we committed our year to PEACE and PACE? What if wholehearted leaders took time to assess all of who they are and where they are going? What if we got less busy this year and created margin and white space in our times at work, home, and at play? What if? 

 

Join us as we unpack why white space and boredom are essential to a healthy brain and wholehearted leadership. We also talk about the Core Values Index and how this shapes what our goal setting and pacinging looks like for the year. If you want more peace this year, and less anxiety, stress, and disappointment in what is NOT happening, then listen in. Whether you are a parent, a CEO, a ministry leader or all of the above, this conversation is for you. 

 

And don't forget that our TWO-year Executive Wholehearted Leadership Cohort applications are NOW open for a March 2024 start date. In fact, the Cohort might be the very thing that helps you see long-term shifts in your leadership at work and at home, finding more peace and pace in your life. We'd love to come alongside you! Learn more and apply today at http://www.livingwholehearted.com/cohort 

 

We are Jeff and Terra Mattson, a husband and wife team, and co-hosts of the Living Wholehearted Podcast. We are the founders of Living Wholehearted, a professional counseling, executive coaching, and organizational development firm outside Portland, Oregon, helping leaders live and lead with integrity. Our amazing team of professionals who have excellent character and competencies, are coming alongside leaders in the home, work and community, providing confidential and safe places for leaders, their families, and their teams. We co-authored the book, Shrinking the Integrity Gap: Between What Leaders Preach and Live, and are raising our two teen girls on 5 acres in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. We also founded Courageous Girls, a non-profit dedicated to helping moms walk alongside their daughters at every stage of their growing years (learn more at mycourageousgirls.com). Bridging the gap between Biblical truth, clinical expertise, and trauma-informed relational wisdom, we are currently engaged in executive coaching, organizational development, writing, speaking, and training pastors, counselors and leaders. We believe that when a leader lives and leads with integrity, everyone in their wake benefits. That's why we do what we do. Want to work with us or our team? Email Jeff at [email protected] or Terra at [email protected].

 

We hope you'll stick around this year and spend some time with us. It's going to be a GOOD year.
